MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Minnesota State Parks may soon be host to gun safety classes.

The Minnesota DNR is considering the move because of growing interest in the classes. In the three years since such classes have been offered online, enrollment has grown from 2,000 students to almost 8,000 this year.

The DNR will test out letting students shoot .22-caliber rifles in a class at a state wildlife area this fall.

If the trials go well, the DNR is planning to offer gun safety classes at Fort Snelling State Park, William O’Brien State Park and others.
